Our 2015 installation of the Chinese-themed legacy garden at the Cairns Botanical Gardens is looking great.

The works included turf, porphyry cobble stone paving, stepping stones, concreting, garden beds, garden edge, tree planting, sourcing and installing ornamental bamboo species and large imported marble boulders.

The logistics of sourcing and installing mature ornamental bamboo and large marble boulders proved to be a challenge, but we think you’ll agree that the results are well worth it!
